Sponges, Brushes And Cloths

4 Apr

master 1d

Continuing with the work I was doing yesterday, and will probably be doing over the next few days, working onto Fabriano paper with my home-made walnut ink, making expressionistic drawings inspired by, but not directly related to, the several days I have recently spent wandering mountains around South Wales to draw Neolithic and Bronze Age stone monuments. At the moment I’m building up the ink washes with sponges, brushes and cloths with no particular focus. Once I’ve completed a few more, I’ll go back and take a look at them again and see how to develop them.

Dewis book


I’m travelling around South West Wales with archaeologist Dewi Bowen who is researching his new book on Neolithic / Bronze Age monuments. His previous book on the stones of Ancient Siluria (South East Wales) can be found here. Accompanying us is film maker Melvyn Williams who is recording a documentary about our experiences. Some of Melvyn’s short films can be seen here. I’m currently working on a series of expressive drawings of ancestral sites and if you want to see some of my other artworks, please click here.

    Do you think your drawings might get to be part of the book?

      I hadn’t planned on it. Dewi is doing topographical drawings but we might collaborate on an exhibition.
